Aerosols Clouds Radiation Budget
Description

The data set contains monthly average global fields of six shortwave (SW)surface radiative parameters derived with the Quality-Check SW (QCSW) algorithmof the NASA World Climate Research Programme /Global Energy and Water-CycleExperiment (WCRP/GEWEX) Surface Radiation Budget (SRB) Project.The parameters contained in these files are:1. Top-of-atmosphere (TOA) Shortwave Downward Flux (insolation)2. Surface Pristine-sky Shortwave Downward Flux3. Surface Clear-sky Shortwave Downward Flux4. Surface All-sky Shortwave Downward Flux5. Surface All-sky Shortwave Net Flux 6. Surface All-sky Shortwave Albedo These parameters were derived originally on a daily temporal resolution. Monthlyaverages were computed from the daily values. The current version of the datasets is identified as Release 3.0. It covers a period of 24.5 years from July 1983 to December 2007.
